Eastern Bluebird

On the morning of June 9th I heard a birdie fluttering inside the chimney of our wood burning stove. The chimney was 20 ft high, so I couldn’t free it from above – I kept hearing the bird throughout the day, wishing I could help. After about 8 hours I heard that the bird was making its way downwards. I said a prayer for the poor little thing and a few minutes later I opened the stove door and cleaned out a bunch of debris that was clogging the opening of the chimney. Out flew this beautiful little Eastern Bluebird. I caught it in the corner – gave it a drink of water and took it out to the woods where it happily flew away.
